A viral interaction between Tiffany Trump’s fiancé Michael Boulos and former President Donald Trump has people convinced Boulos loathes his soon-to-be father-in-law.
Trump’s youngest daughter announced her engagement to Boulos—a 23-year-old executive who’s the son of a wealthy family with Nigeria-based businesses—a day before her father was slated to leave office.
"It has been an honor to celebrate many milestones, historic occasions and create memories with my family here at the White House, none more special than my engagement to my amazing fiancé Michael! Feeling blessed and excited for the next chapter!" she announced on Instagram on Jan. 19, including a photo of her and Boulos near the White House Rose Garden.
Trump opted to skip President Joe Biden’s inauguration, joining a very short list of sitting presidents who have missed their successors’ inaugurations. The former president instead held a farewell event at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland ahead of the inauguration.
A clip of an interaction between Boulos and Trump during the event went viral on TikTok, leading viewers to believe "He’s going to be the one (who) exposes the entire family." In the clip, Trump’s family sends him off one-by-one. He hugs Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle and then Tiffany. But when he gets to Boulos, they share an awkward half-hug/shoulder pat. Boulos appears expressionless and shoots a sidelong glance at Trump throughout the entirety of the video.
The TikTok user narrating the video, excitedly says, “Look at this, look at this. Is that—is that Tiffany’s fiancé. Look at that stare. Look at him. Watch this. Oh my God. … The tea!”
“I am HERE for this family drama,” the TikToker captioned the video.
The video has been viewed over 1 million times and liked more than 120,000 times.
“HE’s INFILTRATING,” one viewer suspected.
“He definitely doesn’t look like he likes him,” another said.
It is unclear if Boulos is a Trump supporter. While the scion frequently posts photos with Tiffany and the rest of her family, including the former president, to his Instagram account, he doesn’t appear to publicize his political views.
However, many members of the Trump family are expected to move to Florida. And Boulos and Tiffany, who reportedly met in 2017, are no different. The couple is looking for a house in Miami Beach, according to a source who spoke with People.
